Reason For FSV Mainz 05 vs Werder Bremen Predictions

  • There have been two or fewer goals in each of Mainz’s last five league games
  • Werder Bremen have won their last three away league matches and four of their last seven league games have ended 1-0
  • Both teams have scored in only of Werder Bremen’s last seven games

Mainz could secure survival with win

Mainz put distance between them and second-bottom Werder Bremen with a shock 2-0 win at Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday and victory over Bremen here would secure their survival.

Mainz were 5-0 winners at Werder Bremen earlier in the season but the visitors have taken a significant step forward since then and should be more than a match here.

Mainz did well to win at Signal Iduna Park in midweek but Dortmund had been performing below par for some time, and therefore, it should be taken at face value.

Achim Beierlorzer’s side have lost all three home games since Bundesliga’s resumption and have failed to score in defeats to Leipzig, Hoffenheim and Augsburg.

In fact, Mainz have the third-worst home form in the division with just 14 points from 16 games and this won’t be an easy game against a side scrapping for their Bundesliga survival.

Werder Bremen improving all the time

This is one of the biggest games in Werder Bremen’s history given what is at stake and we are predicting them to pick up a positive result.

Bremen made a disastrous start to the season but since Bundesliga’s resumption in mid-May they have done nothing but improve.

Werder Bremen have picked up 10 points in their eight games since football resumed and they had claimed just 18 points in 24 games prior to that.

Bremen have won each of their three away assignments at Freiburg, Schalke and Paderborn and they were courageous in defeat at home to Bayern last weekend, suffering a 1-0 defeat.

The visitors have collected 22 of their 28 points on the road and away from home is where they tend to produce their best stuff.

Goals may be in short supply

Both teams have scored in only of Werder Bremen’s last seven games and their new-found defensive resoluteness could ensure this a low-scoring contest.

There have been two or fewer goals in each of Mainz’s last five league games – they have lost their last two at home 1-0 – and given what is at stake here we are predicting another low-scoring affair.

Four of Bremen’s last seven league games have ended 1-0 and our predictions suggest a repeat scoreline here, in their favour.
